NOW Skate Tech
The components of the NOW Skate Tech design mimic the function of a skateboard truck. The "Hanger" acts as a liver that transfers energy from the straps to the "Bushings" and onto the board edges. The "Kingpin" acts as the fulcrum for the "Pendant" and magnifies the energy transfer through leverage. Traditional bindings lose energy when the baseplate flexes and bends unevenly. The energy loss forces you to crank your straps tighter and ride with more forward lean to gain the same control. Uneven pressure and tight straps lead to more foot fatigue and pain. By evenly pivoting over the "Post", the middle of your board flexes more uniformly and your energy inputs are focused directly on your edge. Your feet stay relaxed and more comfortable because of the transfer of power to the board with less work.
